Continuing our weekly guides for Fortnite Battle Royale challenges, here are all of the Hungry Gnome locations that we have found so far.

One of the most obscure challenges for Week 8 of Season 4 is to search seven Hungry Gnomes, which means that you need to find the Gnomes hidden around the map and interact with them.

This isn’t the first time that a challenge like this has appeared. In Week 7 of Season 3, players were asked to search Hungry Gnomes in seven named locations, but this time around you don’t need to worry about the named locations part.

The Hungry Gnomes are situated in different places to last time, but they still make an incredibly annoying noise whenever you get close so they shouldn’t be too hard to pinpoint.

We’ve marked all of the Gnome locations that we’ve found so far on the map below. Remember you only need to search a total of seven so try to plan your route out in advance.

We would suggest landing in Lucky Landing or the Soccer Field in the top North West area of the map and working your way up or down the western side, depending on your choice of landing spot.

Remember to complete any match where you search a Hungry Gnome (by being eliminated or winning) to ensure that the challenge progress is applied correctly.

Fortnite World Cup winner Aqua banned from FNCS by Epic Games

Fortnite World Cup champion David ‘aqua’ Wang has been banned by Epic Games, following controversy over alleged stream sniping against FNCS opponents.

Aqua’s trio (with Rezon and Noahreyli) have been participating in FNCS Europe and, following the Week 3 semis, were accused of stream-sniping another popular trio: Benjy ‘Benjyfishy’ Fish, Martin ‘MrSavage’ Andersen, and Kevin ‘LeTsHe’ Fedjuschkin.

Although fans initially deemed aqua’s behavior suspicious, things quickly escalated. With Benjyfishy’s team unable to qualify for the Week 3 finals and the discovery that aqua was watching MrSavage’s stream during the competition, the controversy has spiraled.

Aqua banned by Epic Games

On October 25, aqua confirmed that his account had been banned from competitive, with Epic Games simply providing the reason as “other.”

Following condemnations of the World Cup winner’s team, rumors began circulating that aqua, Rezon, and Noahreyli had been banned by participating past the first match of the Finals. 

It was never officially legitimized and has since been made even more unclear by responses from some of the involved parties.

After the rumor mill buzzed with the reports that aqua’s team was banned from competing, he took to Twitter and gave a concise clarification denying those allegations: “We are not banned, we just don’t wanna play. It’s boring without early fighting Benjy.”

Given the difficulty inherent to confirming someone was in fact stream-sniping and didn’t coincidentally run into a fellow streamer, many believe it is unlikely that the World Cup winner has actually been exiled from the competition.

Additionally, some have noted that bans typically result in removal from the leaderboard, something that aqua’s team has not been hit with.

As for how the players are handling it, aqua and Benjyfishy simply joked about the incident.

 

At 17 years old, aqua represented his home country of Austria to the fullest by winning the 2019 Fortnite World Cup’s Duos event with Norway’s Emil ‘Nyhrox’ Bergquist. With a smooth $1.5 million earned from the World Cup, he’s since signed with Cooler Esport and continued to win competitions across Europe.

We will continue to update this article with more details as they become available.
